Smegma 101: What It Is and How to Deal with It

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, January 5, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Smegma…it seems to be a dirty, dirty word. Point in fact, it is literally a really clean word. It comes from the Latin meaning soap or to cleanse. So, if it has a squeaky-clean origin, then why do people today associate it with a nasty white funk hiding in a guy’s junk?

Well, it’s because people often hear about smegma when it’s so far gone that it’s causing problems. It’s actually part of a normal daily detoxifying process that happens naturally. Smegma is the end result of clea...

People may want the funk, but not the chunky white smelling kind. That's right – smegma. Smegma didn't start out as all bad.

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, September 17, 2018, In : Men's Health 

The human body is pretty masterful at cleaning itself, isn’t it? Think of all the daily detoxifying processes that happen naturally - the kidneys, bowels, sweat glands, lungs, and liver all work together to rid the body of unpleasant or unhealthy waste materials.

This cheesy substance is an accumulation of oil, dead skin cells, and other bodily flu...

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, June 16, 2018, In : Men's Health 

While it’s typically done as an infant, many men opt to undergo a circumcision later in life. Having a circumcised member is fairly common in the U.S.; among men between the ages of 14 to 59, 81 percent are circumcised. That overwhelming number may make a man question: is circumcision necessary?

While most of those circumcisions happen within days of a baby boy’s birth, more and more often, men are choosing to make this decision in adulthood. Ultimately, circumcision is a personal choi...

The Best Smegma Treatment Plan for Good Penis Health

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, November 18, 2016, In : Men's Health 

Let’s be honest: even the word ‘smegma’ is a little off-putting. Smegma is the natural accumulation of dead skin cells and fluids secreted by the sebaceous glands in the foreskin. This stuff builds up in the area between the foreskin and the glans, and eventually results in a cheesy, white substance that can smell rather unpleasant. Removing this buildup on a regular basis is an integral part of excellent penis care .

The good news is that smegma is entirely natural and can be contro...

From young boys to grown men, many males have questions about their intact penises that have never been explicitly answered by parents or teachers.

There’s no need for such mystery around something most men in the...

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, July 24, 2012, In : Penis Health 

Dead skin cells and sebum oils combine beneath the penis foreskin, and appear as small white lumps. This is known as smegma. While it may be alarming when first noticed, it is a natural occurrence and helps to promote lubrication between the glans and the foreskin. Smegma should be removed through normal washing processes, but in some cases when hygiene is low or washing under the foreskin difficult, smegma may build up and causes problems further down the track. Regular washing, penis health...
